The break from the rain will continue for most of Oregon through Thursday.

The exception is north and west of Portland. Western Washington will see rain on Thursday but we will be just on the southern edge of it, and most of Oregon will remain dry until Friday.

Highs will be in the 50s Thursday, and if we can manage enough in the way of sunbreaks, well into the 50s.

Friday’s rain will be snow in the Cascades above 3,000 feet. Three to six inches of new snow should cover the Cascades by Saturday morning.

Saturday looks like a pretty good day, as the clouds part. Valley highs will be in the upper 40s.

Rain returns on Sunday and turns to showers Monday.

Another round of valley rain rolls in Tuesday, with more mountain snow.

Right now it looks like drying comes at the end of next week.

Have a great evening.
